How do municipalities gain from logistics?

  

Logistics adds value. In most cases, there is much more behind the walls of a logistics facility than just a warehouse. If necessary, we invest in infrastructure so that facilities are integrated into the community as far as possible. In addition, we are putting an increased focus on brownfield developments in order to avoid paving over undeveloped land.

Municipalities benefit from this in three ways:

  • Space for new jobs is created
  • Old facilities are demolished
  • Land is made usable again

 

We are in continuous dialog with municipalities and communities – listening, understanding, and compromising are par for the course for us.

How does Prologis work together with municipalities?

  

Before we develop the concept for a specific facility project in your municipality, we seek to understand your exact needs.

Simultaneously, we allow you to understand our approach. Transparency is very important to us. We work as partners and appreciate fair cooperation and good communication.

We take concerns seriously and answer all questions. If you think our concept works for you, then we look forward to a constructive partnership together – after all, you know your municipality best.


Here, we show you how we have successfully partnered with other municipalities in the past: https://www.prologisgermany.de/en/municipalities/how-we-work

Where does Prologis stand when it comes to sustainability?

  

As a company active across the world, it is highly important to us that we lead and set a good example in terms of protecting the environment. Sustainability is part of our company’s DNA.
 

Our aim is to fulfill our social responsibility, minimize our impact on the environment, and optimize the benefits for our stakeholders.
 

As a long-term owner, our goal is to develop future-ready facilities. We meet or exceed recognized standards for sustainable construction so that we can develop energy-efficient logistics facilities, which means more efficiency and lower operating costs for our clients and more sustainability for municipalities.
 

We also motivate our own employees to lower consumption of energy and water and the amount of waste produced in order to reduce our own operating costs and impact on the environment.

How does the carbon-neutral operation of logistics facilities work?

  

To achieve carbon-neutrality in the operation of a facility, the total difference between emissions and carbon compensation must equal zero.

Carbon-neutral operation can be achieved through various measures such as PV solar panels, efficient lighting, and increased insulation.

There are further options, too:

  • The energy used for operation of a logistics facility can be sourced using photovoltaic solar panels and other, environmentally friendly, renewable sources of energy.
  • The centralized building services system controls energy consumption and identifies opportunities to save energy. Additionally, efficient LED lighting reduces electricity consumption considerably. 
  • Black, gas-powered radiators heat the building efficiently and deliver energy savings of up to 50 percent. Furthermore, stronger thermal insulation ensures less energy lost in winter and better insulation of heat in summer.

What types of real estate does Prologis acquire?

  

When looking for facilities to acquire, location is our main consideration. Prologis acquires logistics buildings in metropolitan regions and logistics hubs such as Hamburg, Munich, Karlsruhe, Bremen, Hanover, the Rhine-Ruhr region, the Rhine-Main region and other core markets. These prime logistics locations offer ideal access to Europe’s major transport routes.

The age and condition of the facilities we acquire aren’t important. We modernize every building in our portfolio in accordance with the latest industry standards.

Where does Prologis look for land and real estate?

   

We are constantly striving to expand our portfolio in order to offer our customers modern logistics facilities in sought-after locations. The acquisition of existing buildings in logistics hotspots is an essential part of our strategy.

Our goal is to grow primarily in regions where we are already active. The modernization or even renovation of infill industrial facilities and logistics facilities creates value for us and our customers. It does not matter how old the industrial site is or whether the logistics facility is currently being rented out – what counts is the location. Would you like to sell a plot of land or a building? Please feel free to contact us. [email protected].

What plots of land does Prologis buy?

    

Our goal is to grow in regions where we already operate, which is why we buy logistics buildings in metropolitan regions and logistics hubs such as Hamburg, Munich, Karlsruhe, Bremen, Hanover, the Rhine-Ruhr region, the Rhine-Main region and other core markets.
We are aware that land is a finite resource, which is why we operate in a sustainable manner and focus on being a good neighbor.

Does Prologis also revitalize brownfield sites?

   

Yes. Sustainability is a top priority for Prologis, so revitalizing brownfield sites is a key part of our strategy.

Brownfield developments create new opportunities without significant additional impact to the environment. No new land is paved over, and prior contamination is removed so the land can be used once again.

Learn about one of our brownfield developments.

What does “logistics facility in an infill location” mean?

    

“Infill location” means a logistics facility is located centrally within an urban area with excellent transport connections. This gives our customers the ability to store and transship products within a metropolitan region and in the immediate vicinity of producers and customers. It also minimizes transport costs and time as well as the impact on the environment.

The acquisition and development of such facilities is part of Prologis’ strategy because our goal is to offer customers logistics space close to the consumer and to shorten transport routes.

An example of an infill location is our 17,000 square meter logistics facility in Bremen.
